  4. teaspoon orange extract
  5. 2 teaspoons Splenda
  6. 2 tablespoons (28 g) butter
  7. 2 tablespoons (15 g) slivered almonds

Cooking Instructions

Put the swordfish in a resealable plastic bag.

Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, orange extract, and Splenda.

Reserve some of the marinade and pour the rest into the bag.

Seal the bag, pressing out the air as you go, and turn the bag once or twice to coat the fish.

Throw it in the fridge.

Let your fish marinate for an hour, turning it when you think of it.

Now, spray a skillet with nonstick spray and add half the butter.

Melt over low heat and then add the swordfish steak.

Pour off the marinade.

Let the fish cook for 5 minutes and then turn it over and let it cook for another 5.

While the fish is cooking, melt the other half of the butter in a small skillet.

Add the almonds and saute, stirring frequently, until golden.

If they're done before the fish is, remove from the heat.

When the 10 minutes of cooking time for the fish is up, add the reserved marinade to the pan.

Let the fish cook another 2 to 3 minutes, turning once.

Remove to a serving plate, pour the marinade over it, and top with the almonds.
